The retooling of the Buccaneers hasn't begun quite yet, but the Bucs at least made some signings in recent days that probably won't affect the 2005 roster, but at least shows there is life at 1 Buc Place.
The biggest addition was the free agent signing of Scotty Anderson, a former fifth-round pick in the 2001 NFL Draft caught 37 passes in two seasons with the Detroit Lions as well as two touchdowns.
Anderson's career took a downfall in 2003 when he and his brother, Stevie, a former NFL receiver, were stabbed in a parking lot outside a Houston nightclub. Anderson was stabbed in the upper left arm, but was cut by the Lions, then the Arizona Cardinals, during the 2004 preseason.
Anderson runs at 6-2, 191, and went to Grambling.
The Bucs also re-signed CB Blue Adams who was a member of the Bucs practice team early in 2003 before signing on to with the Jacksonville Jaguars active roster in October of that year.
Other additions included DT Delbert Cowsette; WR Chris Davis; K Todd France; OL Jason Jiminez; WR Derrick Lewis; WR Adrian Madise; WR Terrance Metcalf; S Kalvin Pearson; DL Brian Save; P Brian Simnjanovski; and OL Mitch White.
Madise and Lewis each spent one week on the Bucs roster during the 2004 regular season.
